My adult son is addicted to heroin, he finally decided to get clean but we are finding it difficult to get treatment. We searched for a doctor online, most posted didn't treat addiction, so why are they listed? After finding someone, he has to wait a week to be seen, one more week to possibly overdose. The office suggested going to a detox facility until he can be seen by the doctor. The facility that they recommended will not admit him until he is vomiting and experiencing diarrhea which he doesn't normally have when off of heroin. The other local facilities don't administer suboxone so we are limited as to where he will go. So, why is it so hard to get treatment when everytime you turn on the news they are saying that there is an opioid epidemic????
